One of the quick points touched upon during [the] iPad event was that iPhoto for iOS can be used to “beam” photos between iOS devices.
As Sande later says, this alone is totally worth the $5 iPhoto cost. I have hated that the only way to get Photos from one device to the other is to connect and sync1 or use Photo Stream.
I wasn’t planning to buy iPhoto, especially with so many lackluster reviews, but this might change my mind.
- I believe you can copy photos to iOS with WiFi syncing, but I think you can only get Photos off your phone by phyiscally connecting it [↩]
